Housing Hasn't Been This Afforable Since 1973 - Where Are The Headlines? - 01/27/09 01:38 AM
The following is a blog that I posted last night under the title "30% Off Sale On Homes". I can't tell you how happy I was to be watching Fox News this morning and see Lawrence Yun, the Chief Economist for the National Association Of Realtors stating that the latest figures had housing affordability pegged at levels not seen since 1973. Imagine that! The average person buying an average home, with an average interest rate is paying LESS, as a percentage of income, than they would have paid for an average home in 1973!

New Year's Resolultion - Attack The Negative! - 01/12/09 03:17 PM
A recent poll done by Opinion Research Cop., surveyed 1000 U.S. adults and asked: "Do you think the financial press is making the economic crisis worse by projecting fear into people's minds?" A WHOPPING 78% said YES. If that is the case, why is it that almost every person we meet lately wants to talk about all the negative around us? In my opinion, they are looking for reassurance.
